Testicles Of 8-month-old Children Suddenly Disappear?
Tonight … Today, my child is 8 months old, before my child’s testicles have been in their pockets since birth. Well, 3 days I just calmed down if the testes were not in the bag because I thought it might be right when I saw the child in a cold shower. But how come today I noticed that the testicles are not in the bag even though I feel close to (sorry) the shaft of the penis 😯 how is that, what happened ?? Do I have to immediately take it to check or wait ??
Hello Iqoh, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
The testis is one of the reproductive organs in men that functions to produce hormones, where the testis is covered by a sac called the scrotum. The inability of the testicles in an infant or child or the testicles to 'disappear' can be caused by various causes, for example:
Cryptorchidism is a condition in which the testes do not descend at birth until they are several months old. In addition, to ensure this condition, it is absolutely necessary to ensure that the baby's testicles have appeared or not. If it is suspected that it has not appeared, it should be consulted with the nearest pediatrician. This kelianan is often encountered, but at the age of 6 months babies testicles are usually begin to appear and can be touched. Retractile testis is a condition when the testis cannot settle in the drotrotums, the testis can move or move between the scrotum and groin, where the testis cannot settle in the scrotum or move back and forth between the scrotum and groin. Testicles that move to the groin will not be felt in the scrotum. However, this condition can be restored by pressing the testis from the groin to the scrotum. Generally this incident occurs in children and can heal itself during or before puberty. These symptoms are generally realized when the testicles appear at any time in the scrotum and then at any time can disappear from the scrotum Atrophy of the testis, a condition in which the testicles shrink which can be caused by several factors such as hormonal. For example injuries that result in torsion testicular conditions, the condition of the testicles is twisted causing severe sudden pain in the thesis. However, it is more common in children aged 12-13 years. However, for babies aged 8 months to ensure the cause of "missing" testes need to be done by a direct physical examination by a doctor. In addition, other supporting examinations may be recommended to help ensure them, for example, by ultrasound examination and so on if needed. Because if it is a cryptorchid condition that has occurred in infants more than 6 months, it requires further handling from the doctor separately to avoid the possibility of complications that occur later. You can further consult this condition to a urology specialist or for an initial consultation you can discuss with your child's specialist doctor.
